Used to love this when it first came out... In the meantime, I have found more exciting scents that I keep coming back to. This is a very sharp and distinctive floral (I can understand why some people don't like it), to some noses this is just too strong and sort of "in-your-face" kind of stuff. People who like fresh and simple florals will find Poeme too extravagant.
I am liking floral fragrances more and more (used to be a die-hard oriental addict). This one is a very fresh and girly floral with warm (and comforting) undertones. If you are a fan of florals, don't miss this one - it's definitely one of the better ones out there.
This does smell a lot like Angel - like a poor imitation of Angel that is. It's not offensive or anything (far from it) I just have a thing about copycat perfumes - I hate them, would never wear them.
This perfume bores me to death. Why can't Boss make a decent female fragrance (I love most of their guy fragrances)? Their new one Boss Intense is just as blah and unimaginative. Not appealing and striking at all.
This is warm, sexy and sophisticated and... what can I say about it that hasn't been covered in the previous posts? Nothing much except that I love it and that it's one of the ultimate sex siren scents. Not for young girls though.
This used to be so hot when it came out. This perfume is the reason why I fell in love with and started using vanilla scents. It's a subtle floral with undertones of vanilla and apricot. Lovely but I've outgrown it. There are so many more scents on the market now that excite me and provoke me more than Tresor does.
It smells sexy and warm on some people I guess. But, IMHO there are so many better pepper scents out there (Givenchy Indecence comes to mind). I'll admire this one from afar.
This could easily be my favourite Dior (together with I Love Dior). However, at one time, it seemed like everybody around me was wearing it so I got tired of it. In spite of that, this is still a very heady and striking oriental, one of those you can not possibly confuse with another scent. That's what makes it great in my eyes.
Fragrances -Dolce & Gabbana - Sicily eau de parfum

Oh no... I really wanted to like this, sounded like my kind of 'fume. According to the Pefume Emporium, notes of Sicily include Sicilian Bergamot, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Black Pearl Rose, Hibiscus, Heliotrope, Sandalwood and Musk. Alas, after an initial positive impression (that lasted for about two minutes), this soon turned into an offensive floral oriental which smells like someone not having washed for a long long time then trying to cover it up with lots of lots of perfume and powder. Urgh! I'll pass this one. D&G have yet to make a fragrance I'll be able to wear. The only one I can tolerate is Feminine.
This is my mom's signature scent so even the tiniest whiff provokes a surge of positive emotions. I have also tried it several times and people have told me I smell lovely. It belongs to the floral-carnation family (I seem to be drawn to carnation scents more and more, i.e. CK Eternity) and its top notes include: freesia and lychee; middle notes: magnolia, jasmine, ginger, pepper and base notes: amber and musk. In short, this is a beautiful mix that smells both girly and striking at the same time. Can be worn both during the day and in the evening.
One of my friends wears this and on her it smells lovely. Smells really fresh and light (so light in fact that it has zero staying power). I do not detect apple notes here, or hardly any notes, come to think of it... And, according to Osmoz, they include: apple, Sicialian cedar, bluebells, white rose, bamboo, musk... Sounds pretty exciting, too bad the outcome is pretty disappointing.
A pleasant and elegant mix of orange, bergamot, jasmine and patchouli. And that's all this perfume is to me - pleasant and far from memorable. I'm sure it smells nice on most people but I prefer the originial Coco.
As soon as this smell came out of the bottle and onto my skin, Addict was promptly filed into the folder named "fragrances with no distinctive notes whatsoever". It just doesn't have a striking note or even an offensive one that might get me to notice it. I am sure I would not be able to recognize it on someone else. It is no different from the legion of other boring vanilla orientals out there. A big no. Deserves one lipstick really but I do like the packaging and the ad campaign for it was lovely so I'll give it two lippies.
I distinctly remember smelling (and liking) this on a high school friend of mine many years ago (several years after it came out). Fast forward to 2004 when I tried it again for the second time. I was floored. True, at one time, everybody used to smell like this (and that usually puts me off) but in the meantime, after all the Tresors, Addicts and Angels this perfume is no longer around every corner. It smells so fresh and sexy on me, goes perfect with my body chemistry. And the drydown is to die for. I am no floral fan (prefer the oriental family much more) but this one is simply irresistible. It contains notes of rose, violet, lilly of the valley, sandal, musk the dominant note being carnation. I love it!
The notes in this fragrance suggested I might like it. However, when I tried it on, it turned out to be just another one of fruity orientals, boring at that. Also, on my skin, it smells too sharp. Its notes aren't supposed to make it that way so I guess it doesn't work with my body chemistry. Two lipsticks because the bottle is really hot. Btw, no way it resembles Chanel Chance! Chance is lovely.
